I would like to report my first hand account of WWE Super Showdown, which was held at the MCG on Saturday 6th October, in Melbourne, Australia.
This is my FIRST EVER wrestling match I have ever seen live! What a thrill!
So here is my summary of this event, and I will express it in terms of Pros and Cons:
PROS: Incredible atmosphere and specticle. Unbelievable entertainment value. Hands down, NOBODY does a better job of packaging this level of entertainment than WWE!
PROS: The event organisers at the MCG organised a free upgrade of my ticket so that instead of sitting at Level 4, we got to see the action at Level 2 for free! So we are a little closer to the action, and the environment is a little more comfortable! Thank you!
PROS: Undertaker vs HHH. Super Showdown had saved it's best match for last. This match alone, between two of the greatest wrestlers we will ever see. was worth the admission price! I must admit my admiration for HHH has increased so much more after this match. I have been an admirer of the Undertaker over so many years, and I rate him as the GOAT. But after seeing HHH tonight, I can now say HHH is equally as great, and that is saying something!
CONS: The policy of not allow cameras or pad devices into the stadium. Cmon. If people wanted to bootleg the wrestling matches, you could do a much better job than bringing in your own camera into the stadium. This rule should be reversed.
CONS: Abusive behaviour in the crowd. Chit chat I don't mind, laughs and carrying on maybe... but foul mouthed language? I had my 12 year old daughter with me, no doubt that offensive behaviour from a few drunks need to stop.
CONS: The ridiculous "No Bags" policy. This policy is not stated in my ticket, so imagine queuing 40 minutes to cloak your bag, and over an hour after the event finished. At 12:30am, well after the 11:00pm finish, we were still queueing. The MCG was shut, and some 2000 people were still wating for their bags. The MCG security need to learn from this experience and do a better job next time!
Cheers and that's all for now. kman64
